    As some of you know, I am doing a shackle flip install. Since I had them off anyway, I decided to clean up my factory springs. They had all kinds of grime and rust and stuff on them. Since I was doing that, I decided to replace the bushings. I got a set of Energy Susp bushings from the local parts store, and they come with a little vial of lube. Question: where exactly should this lube go? On the outside of the rubber bushing...on the inside? both? Kinda a dumb question, but hey...give a quasi-noob some helpful advice. =) TIA!

    I put it inside as well as outside. Helps it slide into the spring and the sleeve slides into the bushing easier.

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>
